Wifi signal is there but won't connect to the internet

Q: Wifi signal is there but won't connect to the internet

Laptop got a virus and I used system restore. When the computer came back up, it would not connect to the internet. It is a wireless signal and the computer recognizes the signal is there, but it won't connect. The connection box says "Connections are available". It also says "Not connected" and "Limited access". How can I get this fixed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

and welcome to the Forum

What exactly hapens when you try to connect? . .

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

I recently re-installed xp on my t43 ibm laptop because the wifi stopped working. After installing all drivers it still wont connect to wifi so I tried a usb wifi adaptor. It gets a strong signal but states that windows can't find a certificate to sign me on. It will connect now to my system via hardwire. How do I fix the certificate issue?
 

A:usb wifi won't connect even though it shows a strong signal. Invalid certificate

Check the date and time. Sometimes you can get a "certificate" error if they are incorrect.

I used a repeater to increase my signal in my garden on the other end of my house, that works perfect. But the signal strengt of the WiFi connection on my PC is lower and also my internet speed. Removeing the repeater gives a internet connetion loss (for a shrot time) so it seems like my PC's preferred connection is to the repeater (witch is further away then my router).

I can choose to give my repeater a different SIDD name so i can choose manually but i prefer the same name.
Is there any way to force my PC to connect to my router with the same SIDD? ( i have a DLink dir 655)

A:WiFi repeater, weaker signal. Can i force Win7 to connect to router?

Repeaters are the same as a network bridge, they cut the bandwidth in half which is why I don't like them. This is why the connection seems slower to you.

Much better off with a wireless access point connected to a wired connection.

With the same SSID it's usually going to pick the connection with the better signal strength. You can choose to forget the other network which would force Windows to choose the 655.

The signal appears excellent, however the internet doesn't work. Well, a few details. The router is in the basement, 3 floors up is the computer receiving the signal. I have an extender on the second floor that's 54mbps, however on the computer it says "Excellent 108Mbps" or something of the like. I'm not entirely sure what's going on, another user can connect to the wifi on the network. Any ideas?

hi all, im having this weird problem for 5 days now, its really driving me crazy, so i have an alienware laptop, never had any problem before, this problem only happend about 5 days ago, everytime i start my laptop the network works fine, but after about 15 mins, the wifi automatically disconnects although the signal indicates excellent, i cannot browse internet or run anything that is connected to network, only by restarting my laptop can fix this; one thing funny about this is that if i open any sort of web page before this problem occurs, i can still browse that certain web page even after this problem occurs; ive tried to flush dns, reset net interface, obtain ip address manually, none of them worked, so here im hoping that somebody on this forum can help me out.

I would think about resetting the router if you haven't done so already. After resetting the router go through the wireless settings again, set your SSID, password and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption.

I need to amplify the signal of wireless internet. I heard about access points, but I don't really know what to look for. Something that will receive a wireless signal, then boost it back out. Any ideas for a cheap/quality way to do this? email is "[email protected]"
 

A:Weak wifi internet signal. Access points?

access point/router/gateway/switches are all ways to tie multiple computers together to share files/internet.

distance, walls/construcion, upstairs/downstairs, how strong the signal is, how many pc's/laptops, all play a part in how well it works as you're sharing the same bandwidth.

i keep it to about 100 ft or less from the signal to the pc/laptop.

So, I have just bought a Windows 8.1 Key and I have tried to install it via the updater not fresh install. The issue I am having is that it keeps saying...
"We can't connect right now
Check your internet connection and try again"
Things attempted to solve the issue:
1. I have restarted my router and my PC and hasn't made a difference.
2. I have looked on the internet mainly forums and YouTube but I can't find a fix.

P.S. I was not sent 2 keys only 1 For 8.1 so I don't know if that will make a difference.

Hi,

I picked up a nasty virus over the wknd, but finally got it wiped & my pc is running normally, except for the internet. I cannot connect to it. It shows I have a strong signal, & I also have a LAN, but there is no communication between my laptop & internet. I've tried resetting winsock; ipconfig shows NO ip, & I continually receive a "unable to query host" error. I've checked drivers & reinstalled drivers on the network cards, downloaded MS Mr. Fixit tools, etc, all to no avail. I have not reloaded XP. I suspect there should be a quick & easy registry fix (I hope). Any help is appreciated.

A:Ibook gets signal, cant connect to internet.

Have you logged on to the router and permitted the ibook to access the internet? Generally, a router may authenticate you to the wireless network but will not authorize you to access the internet service without permitting it through user interaction through the gui.

After I connected to the Wifi, there wasn't a red cross, it shows up only after I start browsing (for eg i browse on Google), then the red cross shows up but I was still able to browse (only on Google).

If I browsed wikipedia, then after the red cross shows up, I am only able to browse on wikipedia but not other sites.. Can anyone help?

Hello,

It says that you are copnnected to two networks. Disable your other network connection or unplug the cable if you are connected via a wire. It probably because it is getting confused about how to access the internet.

If the above fails:
Click Start>Run> type 'cmd'
In the command prompt type 'ipconfig /all'

Post the information on here.

Hi guys,

I have a very annoying problem. I am on a wireless network. We're getting the connection from a floor below, usually the signal is pretty good. I can always connect to the router, but once in awhile, it just won't give me internet access. Like right now for example...I'm using my roommate's computer which sits on the same wall as my computer, just on the other side. Yet for some reason, I can't access the internet. It shows me as connected in the network connections though.

Any idea where to start here? It is driving me absolutely nuts!

You do not need to scribble out the names on that screenshot, since it will do nothing for any of us. That signal graphic is just like on a cellphone. It does not mean anything. There are a lot of factors why you can have great radio signal, but have interference causing a blackout or outage. If you want to see a snapshot of all signals your wifi adapter is seeing, open up a Command Window as administrator and type it 'netsh wlan show all'.

I can connect to my home router through ethernet with my laptop, and I can connect wirelessly to it with other computers.

My laptop can also connect wirelessly to routers other than the home router. For some reason I'm having issues connecting wirelessly specifically with this laptop through this specific router. I need help troubleshooting. Diagnose and repair said there may be a problem with the DNS configuration.

I can't ping IP addresses either even the internet connection icon on the bottom right of the screen indicates that its connected to both my LAN and internet.

I can't connect to the NAS, so the LAN isn't working either.

Sorry, the title wasn't well thought out. I would have edited it if it was an option.

Hello, lets do some cleaning up and see if that helps you out .
How to Flush DNS in Windows Using the Command Prompt

Step 1 ? Close all open web browsers and applications on your computer.

Step 2 ? Open the Windows command prompt by selecting the ?Start? menu and entering ?cmd? in the search text field box followed by clicking the ?enter? key.

Step 3 ? At the command prompt, enter ?ipconfig /flushdns? followed by pressing the ?enter? key. After a moment, Windows will display a message similar to: ?Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.? Once the message is displayed, the DNS will be flushed removing all incorrect entries.

Then , we want to get the IP reset, so, lets renew its settings and see if this also helps out :
you will type in the command box : ipconfig /release then enter, then next ipconfig /renew then enter, this will reset the IP , now restart and attempt to have it reconfigure its connections to your router. Post back results please.

A:wifi won't connect to internet

If you go to Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center, and look at the Network connection diagram, is Internet X'ed out? If so, just click on the Internet. Does that work. (I'm sorry I can't be more specific but, for some reason, I can't get there right now to be more precise. I think I need to reboot.

So basically my HP will connect to WiFi and I'm able to access my browser and all but when I try to use something like the app store for example it displays an error message saying something along the lines that I cannot connect. I'm afraid I'm missing out on automatic updates because of this. There's also the limited access icon near my connection.

After turning on-off wifi multiple times (around 15-20 times), sometimes it gets connected . But it never gets connected in 1 shot .
Is it compulsory to have internet access to connect to a hotspot?
Is it bug or feature of windows ?

Im using a Tp-link wireless router and I have a modem attached to my pc. I just noticed that if I turn off my router, the Ethernet light on my modem turns off, but the power and dsl lights are still on. Is there a way for me to use my pc even if my router is turned off? If I remember right, i've tried it before and it worked... But now, I have to turn on my router just for me to be able to connect to the net on my pc.

A:Can't connect internet even with wifi on in my desktop

I'm assuming you mean Safe Mode with Networking. My best guess is a software blockage, some program has closed your internet access, or, drivers for the devices that connect to the internet are "disconnected." You might consider removing the ethernet card and the wifi card [if such is in the desktop] from devices within Device Manager and force Windows 7 to rediscover the drivers -- hopefully such are on the hard-drive, just needing to be reIntroduced, reinstalled, reregistered. If you can, from another computer, download Tweaking.com's Windows Repair (All in One), install on problem computer, it just might be able to shake loose the obstruction. Accept defaults, add item #26 & 27, run WR in Safe Mode with Networking.

VeasnaYim,
Welcome to Seven Forums!

First off, check to see if your internet indicator light on your router is on. If it is not, then it is the router that needs to be reconfigured. Otherwise, disconnect and reconnect to the router and see if that helps.

Up until yesterday, I could connect my iPhone to the internet via my Win 7 laptop using an ad-hoc network and internet connection sharing. Now I can connect the two with the wifi ad-hoc network, and my internet connection is shared, but the iPhone just can't see the internet connection. I know it's a Win 7 problem because the iphone connects to the net fine using an ad-hoc network and connection sharing when I boot my laptop (MacBook) into OSX (snow leopard).

Both networks (3G internet and wifi ad-hoc) are classed as 'work' networks in Win 7. Can you help ? it's a real pain having to switch to OSX to update my iPhone.....

When trying to fix this problem.. screen went blue and updates started. From that point on computer says I am connect to internet but the Linksey router said internet connection is lost. But computer in bedroom, cellphone,tablet and a few other devices still work using the wifi. Please help not sure what to do.
 

A:Windows 10. Had WiFi but now cannot connect to internet

So your computer is still running, thats good. First lets make sure that it was really Windows Defender that says malware detected. Open Windows Defender, go to the History tab, select Quaranteen and click details. It should list the malware that was detected.
Is the computer wired or wireless?
Then, you said Linksys router says connection is lost, do you mean connection between the computer and router? Some routers can show a list of the connected PCs, is that what you are referring to?

A:cant connect to the wifi but the internet still works?

The first thing you should try is to reboot your router by powering it off, wait 20-30 seconds, then power it back up. This is especially true if those devices that don't connect now, connected fine in the past.

Good afternoon Geeks.

Because Virgin are lame they are making me wait over a monthy to sort my broadband so i need a temporary solution.

I've been looking into Mifi devices as pay as you go/ rolling contracts however most of the devices lack an ethernet port.

My question is can internet me transfered from the mifi device to my pc via a usb/ micro usb cable?

If yes, can i usb-usb my pc to a second pc so they BOTH have internet access.

A quick response would be beneficial.

Kind Regards.

Do you have another user account on this computer? Are you able to see the Network indicator in the notification toolbar on that account? Follow the steps in this documentto create a new user account. If you do find that the icon is in the notification taskbar, you may also use those steps to recover from a corrupted user profile.
Let us know if this helps.

Hello.

I have a problem here. Everytime I connect to my WiFi, it looks like this:

It says "Internet Access", but I can't access any website. What is going on here? The only solution I find this so far is to turn off the Wi-Fi adapter then turn it on again. It makes me tired. Is there any solution available?

Oh yeah, I've tried updating the driver, but it says "Your Adapter is up to date".

Adapter: Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Thanks.

Try to troubleshoot it ? In notification area, bottom right, right click the network icon.Click Diagnose in WiFi Status from image you posted. Might need reset adapter. Which browsers any, IE too, see you use Mozilla ? What exactly does it say in browsers ? Try reset browser too.

My pc was slowing down so I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 7. All went well except one thing internet on wifi doesn't work. The rest of the toys in the house still connect through the router but the laptop does not. If the lan cable is plugged in the internet works. I used this to find the latest drivers for my laptops wifi card. Through the wifi I can enter the router settings but not externally to the internet. I'm thinking its something simple in the security setting Please help.

Guys, we are seeing on multiple Lenovo models like the T440 and X131E's that when they are connected to Wireless they get a DHCP address and can get to intranet sites for our domain but cannot get to anything on the internet. they can ping and resolve to internet sites like google.com. They have this issue on multiple SSID's that they connect to and sometimes it will fail for hours then all of the sudden start working. We have updated the drivers, double checked our wireless LAN controllers, DHCP and we are jsut stumped. Any help or direction on this would be great. Thanks,Matt [email protected]

A:WiFi pulls IP but wont connect to internet

Sound like dns issue. Check which DNS is being assigned. Also if correct and valid. Typically if you can ping beyond your own network its then a DNS issue. You can override the default with something like OpenDNS IP's rather than the ISP or your own.

According to this you should have a connection so something may be blocking the connection like an Anti Virus software.

I understand your new system is having some Internet issues.When it is connected to the wifi, is it obtaining DHCP information from the router? This can be obtained by going to the command prompt and entering ipconfig.You mentioned other PCs work fine. Are any of them also running Windows 7? Has the router's firmware been updated? A router firmware issue can cause some devices not to work properly while others do work fine.

When I plug in an Ethernet cord I can connect to the internet but I can't connect to Wifi signals. I'm figuring there are some files missing by what these error messages are telling me.

The Messages: (appears in two different windows)

There was a problem starting
c:/Users/SUNFLO~1/AppData/Local/Temp/roron.dll

At one point I ran a virus scan; could it be that the files got contaminated and were deleted? If so how do I get these files back? I have a Toshiba lap top, fairly new.

A:RunDLL Error Can't Connect to Internet/Wifi

Files are in TEMP folder of user starting with name SUNFLO. It's a temp file anyway. So you may delete it (as you probably did).

Start REGEDIT and start at the top (click on computer icon). Now search for: wrvetx
also search for: roron

Hey all,

I've been away from the PC world for the past few years because I've been running a Mac.
I decided to get back into some gaming on picked up a Dell XPS desktop running windows 7 ultimate x64.
I bought a Asus USB N10 Wifi Adapter and it won't connect to the internet. It gets a limited activity logo over top of the connection.
Today I tried plugging it rite into the router with a LAN cable and still, no dice. Came up with an IP address error.
I'm guessing this is a router issue? When i run ipconfig in cmd prompt, it doesn't even have a default gateway?
Could someone explain what is going wrong here, and why It wont connect? We have 2 Macs, a PS3, some android tablets and a HP laptop running from out D-Link router.

Thanks for the help in advance, I really appreciate it guys!

I have a netgear router(maybe my first problem). My phone and kindle get a great wifi signal but the computer itself has zero signal and cant connect to the internet. Can anyone please help????
 

A:devices connect to wifi but puter has no internet connection

If the computer is running Windows ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If your only email accounts are free (Hotmail, gmail, etc.) try this direct link. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I hope the title made a little sense We currently have - laptops on location depending on the day There are around signals in the area including our two from on wifi, working same 2nd LAN connect drops to Internet SSID will which isn't insane considering signals in an apt building isn't unusual and rarely causes conflict This is in a two story office building with ours on the top floor Directly below us is a restaurant which I assume some of their appliances mess with our signal Regardless of that we still have great signal strength We have two routers in Internet drops from working wifi, will connect to 2nd SSID on same LAN the office to help ensure signal strength and two SSIDs for the swapping mentioned below A random number laptops at random times of the day will lose connection to our signals Which laptop when how many laptops and which SSID is not consistent There is nothing wrong on the WiFi icon or an ipconfig all and others will still be working on the network just fine You can then swap to the other SSID which could at the current time have users working on Internet drops from working wifi, will connect to 2nd SSID on same LAN it and users with it broken and your internet works I've tried to find some sort of pattern behind this Time brand model laptop and WiFi card nothing leads to a pattern No where in our office is the signal weak Sometimes we do remote conferences Internet drops from working wifi, will connect to 2nd SSID on same LAN presentation from our location and it looks quite bad when the laptop presenting the remote session randomly drops in the middle of it so it's becoming quite an issue there It of course is a nuisance regardless of what people are using the internet for Any suggestions of something to try Edit I forgot to mention that both routers are simply APs connected to the main firewall which does dhcp etc

Just to clarify some terminology...

APs (i.e. "access points") are more often referred to "wireless access points", i.e. WAPs.

They are not in fact "routers". They are simply "wireless access points", which provide secondary wireless networks (i.e. SSID's) at remote distant locations away from the primary router, through a wired connection to the true primary wired router. This solution is commonly used when the wireless network available from the true primary router just can't reach the remote location dependably because of walls, distance or other radio frequency interference in the neighborhood.

Any device connecting (either wireless, or even wired if the WAP also provides some wired connectors as part of its "wired/wireless switch" technology) through these secondary wireless networks is actually passed on through by the AP to the primary router, where true network connected device management and DHCP occurs. Devices connecting to the WAP (either wired or wireless, doesn't matter) all appear as "wired connected devices" back on the primary router. This is because the WAP really is a "wired multi-port switch" from the perspective of the primary router, and any device connected through a wired switch will appear as a "wired connected device" on the primary router. It just happens that a WAP also provides a wireless way to connect to it, but this fact is hidden from the primary router and still looks like a "wired connected device".

Also, the primary main router (where DHCP management occurs) does normally also contain "firewall" technology to prevent intrusion from the outside. But the device itself is still referred to as a "router", not a "firewall".
Now, as to your actual issue, which I'd describe as random and occasional and unpredictable "fadeout" of wireless connectivity to assorted laptops, even while other laptops remain connected just fine to the same wireless network (i.e. SSID, from one of your two WAPs). The existing wireless connection is working fine from that laptop, until for no apparent reason it just is lost.

Well, I'm not sure there's an actual true solution here. I'd say it might be externally caused by the comings and goings of the other wireless networks also active in your building, potentially causing occasional RF interference on the very same wireless channel that happens to be in use for your own various wireless connected laptops which might then be affected. Remember that if your laptops vary by manufacturer and type, then the wireless adapters in them almost certainly also varies in their capability and sensitivity and reliability. Even when two laptops are side by side, their wireless reliability may vary depending on which wireless network they're currently connected to, as well as just their own inherent wireless hardware capability.
These types of situations can certainly be bothersome and annoying, as they are intermittent and seem to elude any genuine correction attempts, but are really "fatal" when they occur and that's harmful. But you can certainly try out other adaptations to improve the reliability and consistency.

(1) you can try WAP hardware from different manufacturers, to see if that provides superior performance. The WAP units from Ubiquiti (which come in assorted capabilities and prices depending on your need) are very highly regarded for commercial WiFi setup situations, and perhaps need to be installed professionally. But you presumably get what you pay for. I don't have any firsthand experience with these myself (other than to read the user reviews) but they're probably much more consistent and dependable than everyday inexpe... Read more

My laptop is inable to connect to internet via its own network card. The WiFi connects but shows no internet while im able to access the internet using a WiFi dongle. I have updated the drivers and even deleted and reinstalled the drivers but still issue didn't get resolved. The laptops own wifi is showing the networks just unable to get the internet and shows an error sign exclamation on the WiFi signal for the laptops wifi card while connects fine using the dongle

Running Win -bit -Running two routers st router is ISP facing which is connects via wireless bridge to a second Linksys WRT don't connect - setting cannot hoc hotspot ad wifi Trouble internet up to remember exact model atm to extend range in my house Either way I get the same problem when connecting host machine to either router When I am connected to downstream nd router via wireless bridge my default gateway points to the first router I think under normal conditions the first router acts as DHCP server second one disabled Basically I want to set up host machine as ad hoc wifi hotspot via Windows wizard I set up the virtual wifi hotspot and it seems to work followed these instructions How To Turn Your Windows Laptop Into a WiFi Hotspot I then Trouble setting up wifi ad hoc hotspot - cannot connect to internet try to connect with the client machines to newly created ad hoc wifi hotspot by selecting wireless network and entering password and the process fails saying DHCP lookup failed I open cmd exe and run quot arp -a quot and see that APIPA addressing is active in lieu of dynamic IP address and that the client machine does have an APIPA address yet I cannot access internet Is it a DNS issue I notice that when I run ipconfig all on host Trouble setting up wifi ad hoc hotspot - cannot connect to internet machine it shows DNS servers as hexademical values MAC addresses I was under the impression that in the absence of DHCP which the host machine cannot serve to client APIPA will kick in thus giving address to host machine But it seems like I can't get onto internet with this machine I mean how does the client access DNS tables when it is in APIPA mode Does it have to do with my wireless bridge dual router set up upstream or some DNS issue at the ad hoc wifi hotspot host machine level I realize that setting a static IP on the client machine is an option but I'd rather get DHCP APIPA working instead Another point The ad hoc set up works when I run a program called Connectify Hotspot and when host machine is connected to either router but not when I use Windows' built in function I'd appreciate any insight Thank you

A:Trouble setting up wifi ad hoc hotspot - cannot connect to internet

APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing - 169.254.0.0) means you couldn't discover any DHCP servers. I don't have much experience in wireless routing but if in bridge mode I guess router 2 was supposed to be somewhat transparent. Normally (shouldn't be the case while bridged) DHCP protocol can't be routed, would need a DHCP proxy set up at the 2nd network segment.

Hmm, to not complicate things, can your host machine connect to the wireless network (normal private IP address)? And if so, to the Internet?

When connected to the 2nd router, in cmd (copy paste):

Code:
ipconfig -all | clip
It won't show anything but copy info to clipboard automatically, paste here.
